While playing Escape from Tarkov, popular Twitch streamer Summit1g lost it at the game’s convoluted weapon loadout system.

Escape from Tarkov is a first-person shooter game developed by Russian studio Battlestate Games, it was released in 2016 but is still technically in development, with more updates and content still to be added.

Even though the game is still technically in development, it’s still available to play and Summit seemed to be getting into it, until he ran into a problem loading out his character’s gear.

What made Summit lose it?

The streamer became frustrated after not being able to find the right slot on his weapon to add a certain attachment to.

After some trial and error, he eventually found that the attachment had to go with another weapon add on, and not on the weapon itself.

“I’m gonna freak out, I’m gonna freak out, ok,” Summit lamented as he tried to figure it out. “There’s something wrong here, it goes on the dust cover. Chat really?”

The streamer complained there was no way to tell how the attachment would fit on the weapon and no indication it should be combined with another attachment.

“It goes on the dust cover, chat, realistically, does this dust cover look like anything could attach to it?” The streamer asked. “I mean come on, where is it even attaching? It’s just a round surface!”

Battlestate GamesSummit kept playing Escape from Tarkov after the loadout frustration.

Escape from Tarkov aims to create a more realistic Battle Royale experience than other games, like PUBG, so it’s no surprise it’s immersive environment caused some confusion for the streamer.

On top of that, Summit has only really gotten into Escape from Tarkov in the last week, so a little confusion in such a complicated game is probably to be expected.

Escape from Tarkov can be a challenge for new players to figure out.

As Summit continues to play the game he’s sure to run into more confusing situations, since Escape doesn’t really seem like the kind of game to hold player’s hand and show them how to do everything.

Based on how much time the streamer has put into the game over the last week (more than 45 hours since Sept 9) there’s a good chance he’ll stick with it, no matter how confusing it might get.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
